I don't know that much about Django internals.  How does it end up 
finding them?  If there is a main entry point that sets sys.path then 
you can set this as the main debug file in Wing IDE and it may 
automatically detect the path. If not, you need to manually add them.

I somewhat suspect that Django is designed so you simply add the models 
directory to the path and then do "import MyAppName" instead. If the 
models directory has an __init__.py file in it, then this is the case.
